Practically speaking…

Dear readers,

I will be less able to blog between now and January 3rd, as I will be traveling in parts of Northern California where the Internet is still a legend told by wild-eyed strangers. I will do my best to answer your e-mails in the interim, and will return to full-time status in January.

If you have combed our archives already, and have read up on Scrooge, I urge you to check out Petitpoussin’s excellent post on the Christmas villainy of the New York Times, and to read JuniperJune’s post on The Crying of Lot 49.  If you’re sick to death of the holidays, it may interest you to know that the Girl Detective feels the same way.

I hope your holidays have been delightful, and once again wish you a happy new year.
